4 ASSORTED NMWs:
1. On a sunset boat cruise. Already eaten protein and open tupperware to discover that vegetable/salad is moldy. Miles and hours from shore. Pre cell phones. Eureka! Other passengers' meals are decorated with a steamed vegetable so I beg for lots and lots of decorations to fill my cup. 2. Mother's deathbed is within a few moonlit blocks of 'Grace's' restaurant where I order traditional Greysheet comfort food to take back to the hospital. 3. My 12-day-old son is in the ER. Ambulance to take us to NICU is late. We had to wait three hours until 1 am. I had called my sponsor on arriving at the ER and she said to eat dinner when I arrive home. So I did. 4. Last year when my son had a seizure and the doctor's office instructed me to call 911, I had the whole conversation with the 911 operator while eating the two hugest X fruits imaginable. I had thought I would be eating a leisurely Sunday breakfast at home and had no other fruit.
